Voters may vote on… magic mushrooms
§ 11395.130 Personal Protections. No local regulation may be so excessive or burdensome as to make it functionally impractical for adults to cultivate Psilocybin Mushrooms as otherwise authorized in this section. It shall be lawful and not a violation … for an adult … to use Psilocybin Mushrooms in one’s home or on any privately owned property in a manner that does not endanger others or violate this division … to cultivate Psilocybin Mushrooms indoors, or outdoors on private property to which access is restricted by fencing where such cultivation is not visible from outside such property, and with the consent of the owner of such property.
11395.120 Psilocybin Mushrooms. The personal, spiritual, religious, dietary, therapeutic, and medical use of Psilocybin Mushrooms by adults, including but not limited to the cultivation, manufacture, processing, production of edible products and extracts (with or without solvents) derived from Psilocybin Mushrooms, distribution, transportation, possession, storage, consumption, social consumption, on-site consumption, public events, farmers’ markets, and retail sale, whether or not for profit, shall be lawful in this state and is a matter of statewide concern … The language of the ballot measure is relatively long because proponents took the option of incorporating the state’s list of controlled substances and striking and rewriting only the sections on psilocybin. The current list was created and modified by legislators, not voters. The state’s medical marijuana initiative, Prop 64, passed in 2016, chose not to pursue that approach for two reasons. First, the Adult Use of Marijuana Act was already three times longer than this new mushroom measure and, secondly, a concern that if voters are seen to have affirmed the current controlled substances list that still includes marijuana and other psychedelic substances, it could be more difficult to change in the future.
